This planned giving option allows you to make a gift to the animals without it counting as taxable income.
A charitable individual retirement account (IRA) rollover is a wonderful option for people 70 ½ and older. That’s because it allows you to make a gift to the animals — from $100 to $100,000 — without the distribution counting as taxable income.
Also called a qualified charitable distribution (QCD), this option is a direct contribution made from your traditional or Roth IRA to a public charity like Animal Welfare League of Arlington, and it is a great option if you don’t normally itemize your charitable deductions.
Here are some key features of a qualified charitable distribution:
- You must be at least 70 ½ years old.
- You may transfer up to $100,000 per year directly from your traditional or Roth IRA to Best Friends or other qualified charitable organizations.
- Married couples can each gift up to $100,000 per year from their IRA if they each meet the requirements above.
- You may not receive any goods or services in return for your IRA rollover gift.
- New legislation effective in 2023 makes it possible to use qualified charitable distributions to fund life-income gifts like charitable gift annuities and charitable remainder trusts.
